I link to this one for the second book's description:
The traditional view of Shakespeare is that he was a man of the theatre who showed no interest in the printing of his plays, producing works that are only fully realised in performance. This view has recently been challenged by critics arguing that Shakespeare was a literary ‘poet-playwright’, concerned with his readers as well as his audiences.
Hurray! Finally a retort to all those "You do know the works are meant to be performed, not read" people!
